May 2nd Horoscope

(Pluto) – MOON – (Pluto) – MERCURY

There seems to be a big gap between these two entities in a planetary row for May 2nd, for one of them feels Unity with everyone on our planet and outside of it, and the other simply follows two parallel lanes checking to see which one is smarter. The key of this combination hides in excellent communication that connects the two, where non-verbal contact becomes even more important that words that are chosen. People born on this date need to find someone to be silent with, someone that gives them inspiration to create eye contact without words and with full understanding of emotions shared.

Love and Emotions

A bit childish for those who judge them, Taurus representatives born on May 2nd have the energy to endure through heartbreak of any kind, and still remain hopeful about what is yet to come. To fully understand them, we need to see their inner glow and the need of their Soul to have fun and be free, the later not being exactly typical for someone born in their Sun sign. They will enjoy falling in love, having their senses employed by learning things about physical contact and bonding with another Soul.

However, their need for liberation is much stronger than one might anticipate. In many cases, they aren’t even fully aware just how much freedom they need, and this could lead them into tough breakups or divorce, until they come to the level of self-recognition that allows them to form a relationship of enough value for their heart. They have the ability to cherish and love several people at once, but their traditional core usually keeps them away from parallel bonds. Still, this is an option that might satisfy them if they are held back by too many restrictions and afraid to step out of a dissatisfying bond.


Energetic state of a person born on the 2nd of May needs to reach great heights so they can achieve the level of awareness they were made to. They were born into this world to find a connection to the Universal Truth, to one shared language, and the higher thought that connects us all. They will bring ideas as soon as their bodies are free to move and ready to ground what comes from the above. They need a lot of physical strength to achieve this much desired power and to be able to bring the electricity of the upper spheres among the rest of humankind and closer to what we find practical and daily.

What They Excel In

Usually they will give advantage to work with younger population and beautifying procedures rather than serious, dark matters of life and death. They have a purity in their heart that serves them well to understand people seen as outcasts or vandals, and for as long as they stay away from putting labels on individuals they are supposed to deal with, they will be incredible working in a team or with any crowd that has special needs.

May 2nd Birthday Gift

Although May 2nd Taurus representatives may value a coloring book more than any other gift, there is a deep inner need that teaches them to be a part of the group they reside in that doesn’t allow them to stand out as much. Choose something that is age appropriate but colorful and always on the bright side, a bracelet or a necklace that goes with everything but really isn’t classic in any way, or a belt that seems quite ordinary but has a fluorescent inner lining that others cannot see. Their lives need to stay filled with color and joyful circumstances and they are your regular candidates for concert tickets, planned parties, and organized care for their children while they finally have a chance to act like children themselves.
